7 Days Uganda Absolute Gorilla Adventure

Gorillas + Chimps Safaris
Go gorilla trekking in Bwindi national park of Uganda and volcanoes national park of Rwanda. Gorilla tracking is indeed the most wonderful wildlife experience in the African bush; search for gorillas in the thick forest/ slippery mountain slopes to get close to these gentle and giant animals. It is very wonderful when you finally close in and watch gorillas go about their life feeding and the acrobatic young seemlessly swing between tree branches! To the size of a mature gorilla, one would expect Gorillas to be violent animals but they are not. This wrong belief was changed by findings of dian fossey a famous gorilla girl who spent years researching about mountain gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda. You may also visit the dian fossey tombs on this tour.
